More than 50 years after Miles Davis and John Coltrane embarked on one last tour of Europe together, fans can finally own this crucial piece of history on The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6, available everywhere today. This 4CD set features, for the first time in an authorized release, five breathtaking performances recorded in Paris, Stockholm and Copenhagen on the Jazz At The Philharmonic European Tour of spring 1960.
Features the latest remastering. Includes a Japanese description, lyrics, and bonus tracks. Features original cover artwork. The complete recordings done by John Coltrane for Bethlehem Records – mostly cut during December of 1957, and issued on the albums The Winner's Circle and Art Blakey Big Band! Both albums were a bit unusual for the label – in that The Winner's Circle was sort of a blowing/jam session type record, cut with some of the big poll winners of the year, but with shorter tracks than the usual Prestige-styled set of that nature. The lineup includes Donald Byrd, Al Cohn, Eddie Costa, Oscar Pettiford, and Philly Joe Jones – and Coltrane's a bit buried in the group, but gets out some nice licks from time to time.
John Prine has set April 13th as the release date for his first album of all-new material in more than 13 years. The Tree of Forgiveness, on the iconic singer-songwriter's own Oh Boy label, was produced by Dave Cobb, the Grammy winner who has helmed projects for Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell and Mary Chapin Carpenter, among others.
"Long awaited" is very true in this case given that Godfrey's only previous solo album dates back to 1973. It's also an accurate description given that this disc of piano music was originally supposed to have been released a year ago. The end result is very satisfying and much, much better than his recent collaborations with the other members of the Enid.
